This article is about Amber Tamblyn, an actress in Hollywood. Tamblyn was criticized by James Wood for the story of a new film she is in. The storyline is about a gay relationship between a 17 year old and a 24 year old. Tamblyn then called him out for trying to pick her up and take her to Las Vegas with him when she was only 16 years old. Woods was 60 years old at the time. Woods tells Tamblyn that she is a liar, and the article goes on to explain more about women who are shut down when they try to speak out on sexual harassment. It ends in a quote from Tamblyn saying, “The women I know, myself included, are done, though, playing the credentials game,” Tamblyn continued. “We are learning that the more we open our mouths, the more we become a choir. And the more we are a choir, the more the tune is forced to change.”
I think I can use this to give an example of sexual harassment in Hollywood, and to show that speaking up isn’t always easy.
